Could China Shut Down North Korea?: We report from the border between China and North Korea on the economic relationship

0 pagina


Military tensions between the United States and North Korea seem to rise on an almost daily basis. But how important are economic factors in putting pressure on the North Korean state? Could China, with its close trading relationship, choose to shut down North Korea - putting pressure on the leadership there?

The BBC's Danny Vincent travels to the border between China and North Korea to look at some of the trade passing between the two nations.

And Ed Butler talks to Korea Expert Aidan Foster-Carter and asks him whether China could shut down North Korea if it chose to do so?

Also, our veteran commentator Lucy Kellaway admits that she does not always learn from experience.
